Just got handed down a tv and trying to program my direct tv remote with it. I have no idea what kind of tv it is. The symbol that has the brand on it is missing and it doesn't even the name on the back. Can someone please help me. Is there a code that I can use that may work with any tv?

Re: direct tv remote code
Go to there web site below and click on the remote control #2 tab. From there find your remote and click on that. It will get you the manual. In the manual look for the tv code shearch option to tell you how to search for the code that you need.

You have to program the remote control to synchronize with TV. If you wish to get moredetails; codes, three digits, four
digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model
remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down
list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.
I bought a second hand Durabrand BH2004D. Then the problem started on finding a universal remote that could work on this tv. It was very fustrating the first day. Then I went to K-mart and bought the Sony RM-EZ4 universal remote. My god it worked, and it was only around ten bucks. The code that worked was 8081. Hopefully ill save someone the fustration that i went through.
11454, 11866, 11755, 10054, 10051, 10030, 10096, 10802, 11198, 11254, 11963, 11990 Turn on the device you want to program the remote for. Press and hold the device key you want to program TV, VCR,etc.with your other hand enter the five digit code. Keep holding down the device key and look at the indicator light. If the light is still on your done. If it blinked four times and went off then you've entered a code that's not in the list.Do this with the codes until it works.
Hi, I work for Directv in the technical department... it is normal for the error message you listed to display on the tv when programming the remote. All you have to do is completely ignore whatever it says on the screen and just complete the remote programming process. I will summarize the instructions for you: First, press and hold mute and select until the green light above the mode switch on the REMOTE flashes twice(can take about 5 seconds of holding down before the green light flashes), then enter your 5 digit code using the keypad on the remote(no matter what it says on the screen-still ignore), after entering the code the green light should immediately flash twice again(that confirms the code was entered correctly), once that happens try pressing the volume up button on the remote, if volume bar displays on the screen increasing the volume then that is the correct code. Once that is all done and volume then works from directv remote slide the mode switch on remote back over to the left under DTV symbol and use remote as normal. Once you change channels or pretty much press any button on remote that is Directv related the error messages will disappear. I usually just press the exit button on the remote in irectv mode to clear the error messages. Hope this helps. :)
Ya it does work with the codes given.. Just make sure you are close to the tv or product you are wanting to program -- other equipment can interfer ... hold search code button down until it stays on then press tv/sat or what ever u want to program then put in the code then power button, item should shut off-- if it doesn't work then try the next code for the brand of tv/sat/vcr u have.. here is the web site with the manual on it..3 different models of this remote just select the one u have from the list on the left. http://www.sentryindustries.com/category/remotes/remotes_rmc10.asp
DirecTV offers a remote code lookup tool, which I just used to find possible codes for my Westinghouse TX-42F430S; its first suggestion (the "most popular" code) didn't work. Clicking the "It's not here" button showed seven more codes, and one of them (11577) worked perfectly. Here is the full list of Westinghouse codes for DirecTV from that tool (as of 11/27/08):
Most Popular Code: 10885
Other Possible Codes: 10889 10890 11577 11282 10451 10000 11092
